A movie I return to now and then is ‘A Scanner Darkly‘. When I watch it I find myself observing the colors and forms more than paying attention to the story that I know so well. With exception. There is one particular scene in which the protagonist (Keanu Reeves) has completely lost his sense of self. He ponders over a suspect he is investigating, unbeknownst to him is that HE is that suspect and is investigating himself. This scene moves me more and more with the passage of time.
“APPROACH”; absence of self in the murky contrasts of our surroundings.
While painting the camera was rolling. This piece was completed in just under 4 hours, I felt no hesitation as I fell into a trance while the headphones played Chris Liebing.
